A loan of $2,675 helped a member to buy and sell a batch of pigs.


Buena Esperanza Group's story

Buena Esperanza Communal Bank is made up of nine members, eight women and one man, hardworking and responsible people with 20 children in their care. They are modest people and fighters. These members are from El Sauce, an area known for producing milk, curd, and cream in the northern part of the country. Lorenza, the coordinator of the communal bank, is in charge of making timely payments for the group. Lorenza's business is raising and selling pigs at her house. The routine of these women is to go out to the neighboring communities to look for a batch of pigs to raise and sell. Buena Esperanza Communal Bank is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua so they have a decent living.

In this group: Lorenza Eveling, Susana, Yamileth Del Carmen, Aracelys Samaria, Erika Transania, Eva Luz, Digna Del Socorro, Dilma De Los Angeles, Estebana Del Carmen
